About the Rankings
U.S. News & World Report ranks hospitals on quality-related information, including hospital survival rates, nurse staffing ratios, availability of specialty care, safety and reputation. Please note that U.S. News & World Report does not survey and rank all specialties. Of the over 40 specialties provided at Seattle Children’s, the Best Children’s Hospitals survey ranks 10 total specialties.
“Finding care for a child with a life-threatening or rare condition is one of the most overwhelming experiences parents face,” says Ben Harder, managing editor of healthcare analysis at U.S. News & World Report. “We hope the rankings and information in Best Children’s Hospitals help make a family’s search for the best care possible for their child a little easier.”
